    6. Judgement Proof Parenting

    6. Judgement Proof Parenting

    We are all so different. Our children are all so different. What works for me and my kids may not work for you and vice versa. So, why don't we all just keep our opinions about parenting issues to ourselves? Right?⠀

    WRONG!⠀

    Because of the way I've come across so many methods that work for my family while I'm scrolling through my FB feed MID-STRUGGLE, pushing a futile agenda, I have an appreciation for the respectful sharing of different ideas. I think most of us appreciate this even though sometimes we're the ones who get our feathers ruffled.⠀

    So with all these different methods, ideas and closely held beliefs flying around, how can we keep our feathers nice and smooth? Tune in to find out!

Real and Relevant

I love this podcast. It’s an out loud processing of the real issues parents deal with. She tells it like it is, with a spirit of hope and generosity. I often agree with her point of view, but even when I don’t I find it thought provoking and worth my time.

Thanks for putting out great content I often find myself sharing episodes with friends!

REAL

I like how REAL Brittney is. This show is short enough to listen to each episode with long breaks in between to ponder. I like the uplifting feeling and feelings of camaraderie I get from listening. Thanks Brittney!
